Country Club Plaza
47th St. from Roanoke Rd. to Main St., Kansas City
The Spanish-style district isn’t just a premier example of new urbanism, a design principle that touts walkable, dense developments designed for retail, residential, and commercial use.
The Plaza is one of the city’s most prized shopping meccas, a place where upscale vendors such as Tiffany & Co. and Coach meet local and national boutiques such as Hemline, Standard Style, and American Apparel.
Complete with a plush movie theater, numerous restaurants, and a sprawling three-story Barnes & Noble, the Plaza pleases everyone from shopaholics to thrifty window-shoppers. Stop in at locally owned Lattéland for a healthy dose of caffeine to fuel your shopping adventures.
Ample parking, both curbside and in off-street garages, puts you within steps of Plaza shops. Be prepared for crowds in warmer months and during the holidays.
